First of all, that assumption that thoughtform is something separateded from living form, is completely wrong. Did you ever observed different "voices" inside of your head when arguing? ;) Everybody knows that. What you are observing, are different thoughtforms which exist inside of entity which you consider as "you", althought, precisely, "self" is nothing but one from several thoughtforms which exists inside every human being. Do you follow me so far?

It's a designed hallucination, whether intentionally or unintentionally (and yeaaaah, you can make them and it's not generally the healthiest of ideas). You feed into it and it becomes more and more real to you, to the point you can imagine what it would say, could do, etc. Imaginary friends and whatnot. You can close your eyes and tell me what a character in a book looks like, or smells like, even if it is not described. You created the image in your mind. If you were to imagine that character sitting next to you, you could imagine what they would say or do. If you were to believe in the character sitting next to you and believe in its autonomy, it can make decisions of its own based on its own rules until you can believe against it hard enough and it well... dies. The kid learns to doubt the existence of the imaginary friend and suddenly it is no more. If you pour enough of yourself into that mental creation, you can make it seem almost real to yourself. Your pour too much, and who "you" are can shift into the imagined idea. If you pretend to be something you aren't, you can definitely become it. If you pretend something is real so much that you blur out the idea you are pretending, you can make it real to you(all sorts of religious implications, but instead of that route, I'd say go all Name of the Wind, if you've read it--what name you call yourself is a large depiction of what person you are. It's one of the central themes and it's an amazing book no matter.).
Sadly, and despite what books like Dark Half would have, you cannot believe in an imaginary friend hard enough that it will go out and shank someone :(. No physical interaction with others except by you as proxy. You could try believing in that personality enough that it would transform you into a killer, but if you have to get psyched up to kill someone, you probably shouldn't be doing it.

An very Intresting read I'll have to check the book you mentioned out. It's still odd as fuck but don't worry I'm certain I would never ever create one. Although I have heard some stories about people who realised they had been subconscious creating a thoughtform, now that's a real bad can of worms.
